Event description

Description

Of all of London's green spaces, St James's is its most stately. Flanked by the great buildings of Whitehall and a suite of royal palaces and monuments, this one time marsh was transformed in the 17th century into a formal European garden, then again in the 19th century as a romantic landscape of meandering walks and hills. At the turn of the 20th century it was recast again as part of the great urban stagecraft of the British Empire. In this walk, The London Ambler traverses the stately green, to reveal the architecture, pomp and circumstance of nationhood. From great avenues and arches to allusionary statuary and pallazo, it charts the transformation of its landscape throughs its best buildings and spaces.

Part of CROWNED WITH GREEN - a walking mini series exploring London's architecture through its great green spaces for Summer 2019.

A walk by 'The London Ambler' - Mike Althorpe
